The Moldy Mess

After some intensive research on comps, Tarek and Christina find a promising 5 bedroom, 3 bath, house to flip in a family neighborhood of Bellflower, CA. When they tour the home with their contractor, Izzy, Tarek and Christina are thrilled to find a newly renovated kitchen and a dining room that just needs a coat of paint, however, their hopes, that the rest of the house will also be in turn-key condition, are quickly dashed when they discover that the upstairs master bathroom is covered in floor to ceiling mold. Considering the kitchen is in such good condition, Tarek and Christina decide that dealing with the mold remediation shouldn't ruin their remodel budget, and negotiate with the bank to secure the house for $385,000. But after they hire a mold inspector to run some tests, they discover they have toxic mold on their hands, which, not only is more expensive to treat than was expected, but will also take longer to fix. As they open up the walls to deal with the mold, they also find fire damage throughout the attic, and extensive termite damage throughout the house. With further delays and costs, all bets are off, as Tarek and Christina scramble to get this home renovated and on the market. Will cleaning up this moldy mess make them Flip or Flop?

Flop House Flip

Tarek snoops a small four bedroom foreclosure with a pool in La Mirada as Christina heads to the public foreclosure auction where the house is on the docket. Tarek calls Christina, and from his evaluation of the house, Christina bids and wins the house for $210,000, a smokin' deal! However, as soon as Tarek and Christina open the door, it's clear that this dilapidated house needs a full rehab from tip to tail. It's a disgusting, smelly, confusing mess of rooms, with piles of trash, and graffiti everywhere. Tarek seriously underestimated the home's rehab costs, as initial bids from contractors come in at $50,000 and up. The cost alone for cleaning up this flop house is expensive, but when they begin to discover a bevy of unpermitted construction, Tarek and Christina are forced to demo unpermitted additions and spend money to decrease their square footage! With a skyrocketing budget and a rehab plan, which actually might be de-valuing the house, will this flop house Flip Or Flop?

As a result, when a fellow flipper contacts them about partnering on a house and he wants to split the time, money, and profit 50/50, they are very interested. But flipping is not a team sport; it's a competitive business and trade secrets are a closely guarded commodity. Can Tarek and Christina play both mentor and business partner? Will they all see eye to eye on budget and design, or could disagreement dissolve friendship and profit into a flip with the enemy?

Pipe Dreams

Tarek and Christina come across a For Sale By Owner property in Garden Grove, California. This type of sale is always exciting for a flipper because it means no real estate agent commissions and an opportunity to negotiate a fair sale price.

But in the business of flipping, one can rarely judge an old house by its finishes and it is truly what's on the inside that counts.

Too Small to Fail

Tarek and Christina find a short sale home listed in Whittier, California that's rather small but the asking price of $275,000 looks enticing next to comparable properties in the area.

Despite their rigid debt ceiling, they're convinced they can purchase and rehab the home within a strict budget.

Of Wreck and Ruin

No Risk, No Reward

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a trust sale property in Anaheim, California with an original layout and a dated design.

But when their project manager comes back with a ballooning budget and a laundry list of contingencies, Tarek and Christina wonder if this home has more potential than pitfalls. Still, skilled flippers that they are, Tarek and Christina don't back down from a challenge and know that with no risk, comes no reward.

The architecturally significant mid-century modern home will require Tarek and Christina to step out of their design and renovation comfort zones if they are to turn a profit on their investment. Can Tarek and Christina turn back time on their design aesthetic without inflating their budget or could a present-day flop be looming over this historic mid-century flip?

Custom Craftsman

Tarek and Christina are contacted by their friend and fellow flipper, Jessie Rodriguez, who has purchased a craftsman style home in an historic area of Santa Ana, California.

It will take both skillsets to finish and sell this project for a profit, and Jessie is hoping to strike a partnership. Can Tarek, Christina, and Jessie combine the speed and cost of a flip with the detailed craftsmanship of a renovation to deliver on this custom craftsman flip?

It's tenant occupied which means they cannot inspect the house, but the numbers look good and after touring a comparable, renovated listing, they feel confident enough to make an offer. Tarek and Christina arrive at their new house ready to design but that will have to be put on hold as they could not have anticipated what they find. Can they keep this flip on track or will a bevy of surprise expenses deliver them a flop? Have Tarek and Christina fooled themselves into buying a pig in a poke?
